SATELLITE COMPANY JOINS PROJECT TO CREATE UNMANNED ROBOT SHIPS

The Advanced Autonomous Waterborne Applications Initiative, as it is more technically known, is a project spearheaded by Rolls Royce to create ships that can cross the sea without humans on board. People take up already limited space on a ship, and they have biological needs that require even more space, so a ship without them can do without a galley, sleeping quarters, storing food for the crew, or anything else related to habitation.

DARPA Funds Stage 2 of XS-1 Spaceplane Design Competition - IEEE Spectrum

Just because the Space Shuttle didn’t magically open orbit up to everyone doesn’t mean that getting to space through a reusable platform is a bad idea. In commercial spaceflight circles, the thinking is that reusability is the best way to help drive down costs. DARPA, the U.S. Defense Department’s blue-sky research arm, wants a piece of the action; but in typical DARPA fashion, the agency is looking for something even more futuristic. It has just awarded nearly $20 million to three aerospace companies to continue design work on a reusable spaceplane that will be able to launch a...
